Freer Percussion products are well known around the world for being the most unique and creative designs, materials and covering techniques. It’s our goals to have FP remain first in its class and a clear leader in the orchestral percussion market.
Custom made black delrin threaded sleeves and nuts.
CNC machined felt core at a very specific durometer to match the original model. Cartwheel covering is hard American felt tightly sewn and mounted completely by hand, and custom fit so that top and bottom stitches are hidden by the seat and the nut, producing a very clean and clear sound.
Usage: Anything requiring point and clarity with still a little warmth/depth and a darker sound than Cloyd Duff #1. Its sound can be described as clear, clean and darker than a CD#1, yet still with a beautiful quality. These mallets work and fit perfectly in between the CD#1 and CD#3 models for rhythm, point and articulation. An incredibly versatile, handmade replica timpani mallet made to last.
1" diameter wood ball with tight chamois cover. Chamois is always carefully selected for matched thickness and evenness. Warmer than #1 and still very bright and clear. Perfect for Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven and much more. Also excellent for percussion instruments and chamber music.
Tonkin shaft with convex felt core and extra hard felt cloth cover. Great staccato mallet. Also known as “Freer greens” these have now found their way into hundreds of timpani players cases and have become a standard for nearly 1000 customers.
Soft German felt general stick with 1mm base felt on 1.5” x ½” cork core. Just hard enough for minimal articulation and soft enough to still roll with. A perfect stick for Beethoven 5 transition to the fourth movement. Also great for Strauss Burlesque. Head size : 1.5” x ½” core
